Can't Change Print Speed Over USB


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't Change Print Speed Over USB

Hi - I'm using Cura 4.6.2 (yes I know v4.7 is out there - I'll download shortly) on my iMac with direct USB connection to my Creatlity CR10s Pro v2. If I used the conventional SD Card path, I'd be able to amend my print speed on the CR10, but using Cura over USB, I can't change it from the default to another value. Anyoine come across this and a method I can use to adjust print speeds during a print?

    I don't have an answer for your specific question, but printing over USB is old and not recommended, so just use the SD card and you are much safer. The functionality is included in Cura for some backward compatibility, but AFAIK not actively developed anymore.

    Another one that types faster than me...


    The USB side of Cura isn't supported by Ultimaker anymore.  None of their printers require it so it's legacy software at this point.  If the side of Cura that is busy sending Gcode doesn't allow for interruption then you will need to try Pronterface/Printrun or maybe Octoprint.  Pronterface allows you to see the responses from the printer as well as send codes.  You can also write your own macro scripts and send them to the printer.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
